[Tutor] VIX API

There is a wrapper. It's called pyvix (http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyvix).
If you actually use it, let me know how it goes. I use vmware every day at
work and would love to control it via some python tools if the API functions
well. I've not had the time to play with it.

Creating your own wrapper using swig(http://www.swig.org/) is not a bad
exercise if you've not done it. Callbacks are the only part that I'd call
really *hard* about wrapping a C Api using python, but debugging is
definitely different across language boundaries if you've not done it

Now if you're really feeling like you want to cause yourself some pain, you
can try to hand code a python extension...but I suggest you try the
automated tool first....
